Hello, I couldn't find this searching but I was wonder do you need to drain your coolant prior to swapping thermostat and housing? This is for Zetec motor Svt

Thanks

Thanks for info before I made a big mess, guessing it drains from the radiator somewhere

In general on any vehicle you drain the coolant at least below the level of thermostat if you don't want make a mess. This car doesn't hold much, so I drain the entire system.

The drain is on the bottom drivers side of the rad, there is a nipple next to it that you can put a 3/8" ID tube on for tidy drainage.

Thanks, also searching it looks like people recommend going with motorcraft gold coolant. My car looks to have prestone green/yellow right now
